Word of the Day She'elat Kitbag

In Israel, many a soldier has had to run with a duffel bag on his back because a comrade asked a question that it's best not to ask.

Remember in elementary school when there was always a kid who had to ask the teacher whether there was going to be homework that night? In Israel, the army-derived equivalent of the question that it's best not to ask because you, and probably others as well, will have to suffer the consequences is called a she'elat kitbag (sheh-ay-LAHT KEET-beg).
